The Problem With Current Recruiting Processes
Date: 16th April 2016
At present, employers seeking to fill vacancies regularly turn to recruitment agencies often resulting in 'beauty parades', then selection of the 'chosen' ones. Briefing then occurs followed by a market trawl to establish applicant interest ( via advertising & agency databases) to create an initial list of potential candidates. At this point the employer may shorten the list or decide to first interview all prospective candidates - the first stage of engagement in what has already been a time consuming and therefore costly business. Further costs arise when the successful candidate is appointed and the agency fee, typically 25% + of the gross annual package, falls due.
